Along with venues like The Old Library and Giro Osteria, Cronulla’s new beachside bar, Old Joe’s is revitalising drinking and dining on the seaside strip. Set right on the shorefront, next door to notorious nightspot, Northies, Old Joe’s aims for a more laid-back atmosphere.
The fit-out, by interior designer Sibella Court, is ‘Hamptons-style with sorbet colours,’ replete with reclaimed wood, striped awnings and a longboard. The menu sports American-style ribs, hot dogs and a lobster roll. Cocktails keep with the milk-bar theme, serving shared drinks in kettles, pre-batched RTD’s, ice-cream spiders, and a boozy milkshake. For those not convinced by vodka and milk, a 20-long list of craft beers should do the trick.
